Ask White Pines DA to File Charges Against BLM Contractor for Animal Cruelty

American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign

Video of a Bureau of Land Management (BLM) contractor stampeding a compromised,older-looking mare by helicopter for miles until she collapses, has shocked an American public unaware of what is happening to our cherished wild horses on our public lands.
The American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign's (AWHPC's) Deniz Bolbol took the video that has been submitted to the White Pines County, NV Sherriff's Department for investigation of possible violations of Nevada's anti-cruelty statute, which makes it unlawful to "Overdrive, overload, torture, cruelly beat or unjustifiably injure, maim, mutilate or kill an animal." (Emphasis added.)
According to News 4 Reno, White Pines County is looking into allegations of crueltyy.
Meanwhile, the Antelope Complex roundup continues, and eyewitnesses continue to report cruel treatment of wild mustangs in this remote northeastern corner of Nevada.

AWHPC has been working to ensure that BLM is held acountable for this cruelty. Now we need your help to send a strong message that the mistreatment of our wild horses will not not be tolerated!
Please take a moment to personalize the below message and send a polite, brief email to the White Pine District Attorney asking him to hold BLM and its contractor, Sun J LIvestock, accountable for the cruel treatment of the old mare. If a private rancher treated his horse in this manner, he would be prosecuted for animal cruelty. The BLM and its contractors are not above the law!   CLICK HERE!
